    Tim played a crucial role in creating the nation's first remote notarization law in Virginia when RON wasn't fully understood or trusted. He helped write VA House Bill 2064 thus spearheading a movement for remote online notarization. He also worked on other enactments in Montana and Texas. He was also commissioned by the American Bar Association as an advisor to the Uniform Law Commission's Revised Uniform Law on Notarial Acts. His influence and his work in Virginia helps state governors and notary commissioning officials write RON laws. This in turn, allows more states the opportunity to pass remote online notarization.

For spearheading RON laws in the US, he was selected by the NNA as 2022 recipient of the March Fong Eu Award. An internationally recognized expert on online and e-notarization, digital identity law, e-apostilles, data privacy, and interstate and international recognition of notarial acts, he has testified on these topics before the U.S. Congress (the Interstate Recognition of Notarizations Act or "IRON Act" 2010), a dozen states including California and Florida, and the Hague Conference on Private International Law. Currently, he serves as an appointed ABA Section Advisor to the Uniform Law Commission's Drafting Committee to Amend the Revised Uniform Law on Notarial Acts (RULONA) to authorize online notarization. On the international level, he has served on the Advisory Board of the European Commission's LIGHTest Project. He is a founder of the Cybernotary Society.
